Red chair


Our cat, Cammie, prefers the red velvet chair...of course she does.
A shadow shot sans cat...

Love that pillow on the red velver chair and the yellow shadow behind the table statue.--and the clock reflection in the mirror. Very nice...what kind of camera do you use?

High Desert Diva said...

Thanks Cynthia.

I have a 5 or 6 year old cheap Cannon digital. I tweaked this photo in Flickr Picnik.

What a lovely corner. How about a good book and a spot of tea?

Rosebud Collection said...

What a beautiful shadow..Happy SSS.

Cecile/DreamCreateRepeat said...

That pillow looks like some with a backgroundd in ergonomic engineering and interior fashion designed it -- perfect for nestling into just the right spot!

Dave King said...

I've kinda gone a bit nuts about this post, and I don't know why... help me out anyone?

High Desert Diva said...

Dave,

It's probably the trophy. She has that effect on everyone.

M.Kate said...

Very nice shadow just like the first commentor said..That is one cosy spot..LOVE that red chair and that pillow is awesome!!

High Desert Diva said...

Glad everyone likes the pillow.

I made a pattern (ok...my friend Jan made the pattern, ahem...and sewed it for me) of a vintage pillow I bought at the Pasadena City College Flea Market.

Jeanne said...

Gorgeous chair -- how in the heck do you get the cat hair off it?

High Desert Diva said...

First, I get as much as possible off with my hands, then I roll, roll, roll. This chair is in the living room, so it rarely (besides Cammie) gets used.

Sweet Repose said...

Back in the day, my Mother read in Good Housekeeping Magazine, that a home must always have a red chair...it commands a focal point and brightens any drab space...I have a red velvet chair too!

Have a warm day girl!

That is a chair after my own heart.

Golden West said...

Just a tip - if you need to get cat (or Trux) hair off something, pronto, a length of clear packing tape will pick it right up - sticky enough to grab the fur, but gentle enough to leave the fabric nap alone.

nuvonova said...

Oh that is a beautiful photo!

Victoria said...

Oh how lush! I adore that chair and the very cool shaped pillow!

Jenn said...

Looks great! LOVE that chair, no shock Cammie does too :) Think of it this way, at least her fur isn't white :)

bobbie said...

That pillow is special.

Peggy said...

The chair is stunning. The shadow from the statue is amazing. I can see why Cammie likes this room!

T.Allen-Mercado said...

I love the chair. I need a throne like Cammie's. And, I agree with Sweet Repose, we had a red chair in the house growing up...even amidst all of the mustards and olives (gotta love the 70s)-that red chair made the room feel regal.

Greyscale Territory said...

Lovely warm tones in this photo! Even the shadow tone looks warm!

shiborigirl said...

What a luscious, warm image for a cold, cold day.

That is a sweet red chair--nice shadow too! Happy Day!

Pagan Sphinx said...

I wish I could see the statue better. I love statue shadows. Nice one.

Hey Harriet said...

Beautiful colours in this shot. Like the others, I'm also lusting after that chair of yours...er...of Cammies :)

SweetPeaSurry said...

I'm blopping by to leave my 2 knishes worth of words. Love the photo the shadow is pretty amazing.

The Queen Of Re said...

Love the chair and the pillow is adorable.

Helen said...

For the very life of me, I don't know how I stumbled onto your blog. From the sidebar of a sidebar of a sidebar I think, but can't recall who. However ... I am so glad I did. I've gone way back looking at your posts. I enjoy your photos of the high desert we share, I enjoy looking at how you transformed your home .. and you dog is precious.

Hot Fudge said...

OK, it's driving me nuts as well - what IS that trophy?

Oh, and I love the chair.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

The shadow looks like a drake. Perfect shot!

Yeah! i agree Cynthia of commenting your pillow. I LOVE it... such a gorgeous pillow to grab from U §:-)

XUE said...

Stunning colour & stunning corner! I love, love, love that cushion!

High Desert Diva said...

The statue is a ladies golf trophy from the 1930's. I have another shot of her in this post: http://etsyhighdesertdiva.blogspot.com/2008/08/art-cabin.html

This link shows the vintage pillow used as a pattern for the pillow on the red chair:

I love how floppy the old pillow is...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

What kind of cat would she be if she didn't have great taste?

Nice shadow shot!

Great shadows! I love the deep red shadows on the chair and the yellow shadow behind the trophie. Purrrfect photo ;D

I love the composition of this photograph along with the shadows. I participated in Shadow Shots for the first time at Sacred Ruminations this past Sunday.
Hugs and blessings,
